WATCH: 3D-Printed Rifle Fires First Shot

A YouTube video posted yesterday shows what is likely the world’s first 3D-printed rifle in action. The gun, shown in the video above, looks less than menacing — its white, plastic construction seems more akin to a toy than a deadly firearm. The gun’s Canadian maker wrote in the video’s YouTube description that he named his weapon “The Grizzly” to pay homage to Canadian-built Sherman tanks used in WWII. The Grizzly’s first shot, recorded for posterity , did not go entirely smoothly. Though the gun was capable of firing a single round, the barrel and receiver both fractured in the firing. The Grizzly’s maker wrote in the forum Defcad that the inspiration for the 3D rifle came from the first-ever 3D-printed firearm, the “Liberator,” which was built in Texas

LOOK: This Was What The Future Was Supposed To Be

Back in the 1950s, many thought the future would bring nuclear warfare . Others thought the future would bring an unusual amount of yellow to our homes. This shot from the 1956 Ideal Home Show in Olympia, London, shows the latter train of thought with the below “home of the future.” This was, of course, when the exhibitors weren’t theorizing about what the ’80s would look like . We can look back on it and either laugh — or covet the molded plastic chairs. Have something to say?

Peg Fitzpatrick: Savvy Authors Surfing the Web to Bridge the Digital Divide

Book clubs are popping up all over the internet as more people become entrenched in their digital lifestyles. As people move their social circles to the web, it makes sense to build literary connections online as well. I started an online book club over two years ago because I found that many of my friends on Twitter liked to read which forged an instant bond as we talked about books. Two of my first online book club tweeters continue to be two of my best online friends today.

They discovered a technique so simple and effective it doubled the amount people gave.
